Check out my web site http://www.drewmcadam.co.uk

Buried in there on page two (introduction)is a link to a press clipping. I got a front page and a follow up full page - that was a spectacular!

I did it by visiting the office, befriending the ditor, doing a couple of stunts, then talking them into an experiment that would involve all their readers - they like that kind of thing!

I can't believe it ! It's so funny ! VERY GOOD idea Drew ! The psychic triangle in the hand ! My god ! And people contacted the newspaper ?
Incredible. I never dared (despite my name...) an experience like that. I'm always afraid of having nobody relating a "miracle".
Best,
Fred

Much of the credit must go to Ian Rowland for this particular stunt. The really funny thing about all of that is that I was later phoned at my office by a young man...

"Are you the guy wot does all that psychic stuff?"

"Yes," says I.

"I need your help."

Uh-oh, I think. This means trouble - he's probably seeing demons or something...

A momentary pause, then he asks in all seriousness: "Can you fix computers?"

<<Ian Rowland gave you this idea>>

Not exactly. I incorporated some of his excellent suggestions, though. I had already set it up and felt it needed some fine tuning - he's the man for getting rid of the wrinkles!
